Also, another question...Does a park like this do well,business wise, in Spain? Seems to me this would be the type of park that would be stuggleing in the US.


From what I have heard, Terra Mitica was struggling alot earlier, but I have no idea how they are doing at the moment...

Well, here is the last of the mini-updates from the Spain trip! I'll move on to doing Mini-Europe updates tomorrow.

Our last park was Parque Warner Madrid, which was built by Six Flags and could arguabley be the nicest "Six Flags" park ever!

Although it was REALLY freaking hot the day we were there and it made it almost unbearable.

The day started out with ERT on Superman, the B&M floorless, which many people agreed was one of the best coasters of the trip.

Coaster Express, the RCCA woodie which last year I deemed one of the worst woodies I've been on, actually wasn't running quite so bad this year.

Anyway, onto some photos and some videos!

Yup, we're at Parque Warner. Old people like Jeff need this photo as a reminder because by now they've already forgotten what update this is! =)

WAAAAY to jolly about riding Spanish Deja Vu!

Honestly, though, Spanish Deja Vu is probably the SMOOTHEST of all the Deja Vu's! No idea why....it just is.

Today would end up being the day for "random group photos at entrances to rides."

Someone REALLY likes Batman! "Um, Jon....we're going....Jon....did you want to ride? Um....Jon....are you ALREADY riding?!?!" =)

Uh, oh...this could only mean one thing is coming.....

Coaster Express!!! Which is basically Son of Beast without the loop and now that Son of Beast doesn't have a loop, it pretty much IS "Spanish Son of Beast!"

Lou can't take any more pounding on her hymen!!!

Honestly, it wasn't as bad as when we rode it last year! Still rough and brutal, but we didn't hate it!

Wait! Wait! Wait! We need another random group photo at the ride entrance!

But wait there's MORE!!!

On one of our last nights in Madrid Steve decided to crash the wedding that was going on at the hotel....I'm sure he can tell the whole story, but these photos and videos certainly add to the hilarity of the evening!
parquewarner_23.jpg
I see Lou and Steve...but where's the bride and groom?!?
parquewarner_22.jpg
Is this the bride?

Maybe not but Ron is about to become someone's bitch! :D

And video proof of Steve dancing his jig!

I'm so speechless. This is by far one of my favourite memories from the entire trip, Rob (with one b) and I couldn't do anything other than piss ourselves laughing. Thanks Steve, you were a fucking legend that night.

Blimey - at least 2 of my chins were not synchronized- must try harder!

The truth of the gate crashing is that some Spaniard crazies (well the smashed out of his skull best man and his mates) threatened to kill us all unless we joined them for free beer and upset the total order of things. It was Trev's fault for wearing what they thought was a Liverpool Football (soccer) shirt, which turned out to be a Stoke City shirt! Much confusion ensued, so I thought the best thing to do was pile on out there and look like I belonged to the wedding party.

If you can't speak the langauge, and appear to be dressed inappropriately, do what I did - dive in , shake your booty, arse, A$$, boobs, chins, anything that moves and hey - you get free beer.

I rest my case - oh and Ron, if you had taken your shirt off then, I feel sure we would have also gotten some free shots!

Lou - we must dance again, I'm limbering up for some Japan style moves, although I think I have only ever seen them pole dancing.

Could be fun though? ;)

Oh and BTW British Rob with one B - where are the pics of Lou and the Gypsy King blokes, remember the actual little bloke that danced and then propositioned Lou in front of us all? -these need to be posted sooner rather than later :lmao:

Awwwww. I actually kind of hoped that Coaster Express would have been on a murderous rampage. That would have given me something to laugh about. :roll: Oh, and the Hoffman girl + Superman = :| Ew.

The only thing better than a naked woman is a naked donkey!

You know, one thing I loved about Superman at Warner is it's one of very few, (wait are there any others?), B&M superloopers with a "straight forward" drop. Twisting is fun, but you can't beat a great big drop straight ahead. Anyone else share this opinion?

And, I just remembered that the very first video I ever posted on the sight was from my Spain trip back in 2004. I re-posted a streaming version for anyone who's interested. Those of you who met me on the Mini-Europe Trip will be interested to see what I looked like when I had a small enough forhead to actually style my hair. Teetle.

Oh my God, I'd forgotten that was the same night. Umm, NO, they do not need to be posted. ::shock:: That was frightening! ::shock::
